It’s almost the summer solstice so I thought I’d share some of the things I’m looking forward to this summer.
Running: I’m trying out trail running this summer! I found out that Fleet Feet Minneapolis does a monthly trail group run over the summer so I’m excited to join them and check out the trails in the Twin Cities.
Eating: I cannot wait for fresh berries to be reasonably priced in stores. Fresh raspberries and strawberries are some of my favorite things to eat during the summer and I’m hoping to do some baking with them (maybe making some berry ice cream?).
Reading: I started listening to Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan and I can’t wait to the finish it. My loan ended before I finished so I’m back on the hold list. Some other books I have on hold are:
Circe by Madeline Miller
Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie
One of Us is Lying by Karen M. McManus
Cooking: I cannot wait to get some more grilling done at the apartment. It’s a little bit of work to get everything to where we can grill but everything is better grilled. I’m also hoping to do some more experimenting with our ice cream maker and trying to make frozen yogurt.
Traveling: Mike, Vinnie and I are heading for our first solo camping trip to Cascade River State Park in just a couple of days! We are also hoping to get out for some day hiking trips around the area and of course we have our usual camping trip with my family to Crosslake in August.
What’s on your summer list?
